Bass Trombone Players association
I would like to bring to everyone's attention a few very disturbing
things that will be happening over coming months.
The Bass Trombone players association president Mr Peter Younghusband
has called a strike for the 1/4/98, this follows on from the Ban
placed on notes below C in early October, and the no Pedal notes
on Sundays rule passed in 1987
Although I have always supported the Association and its constant
struggle to get us Bass Trombone players the status and respect we
deserve in all musical groups and particualrly Brass Bands I feel
that with this call to withdraw our playing for 24hrs Mr
Younghusband is going way to far.
The log of claims on the table at present include equal billing with
Principle Cornets at all Band Concerts. Beer to be provided at all
times. Nude Women (or Men or Both, or inflatable beings of your
choice) to be avaliable at all times. I personally agree with all
these. I do however have a problem with this, all players with
initials PY will be paid $100,000 a year a move to Australia.
I trust that other Bass Trombone player out there will voice there
disgust with this proposed strike action.
I hope that we can return to the negotiating table with the Condutors
association very soon.
